Presenter: Westwork Technology
Topic: Design for Manufacturing with an Emphasis on Wearables
Time: 1:00pm, Garden Court 2

The trend of higher performance components coming in smaller packages such as wafer-level chip-scale often makes this challenge even more difficult. The instructor will go over tips, tricks and design considerations that will help you design for higher reliability and lower cost. Modern manufacturing techniques will be discussed as well as how this affects the design stage. This seminar will teach you how to improve the reliability/cost of current technology and design with the smallest/latest technology.

Presenter: Testforce
Topic: Wireless Interference Hunting Seminar
Time: 2:30pm, Garden Court 2

Details: Wireless technology is so widespread that the frequency spectrum can be quite crowded. Almost every portion of available frequency spectrum is shared by multiple services and/ or applications, requiring practical, effective control of interference. To eliminate interference, it must first be isolated and identified. In this one hour seminar we will discuss the three most common types of interference, and how to choose the right spectrum to help identify and help locate sources of interference.
